Image:Williams College - Haystack Monument.JPG|thumb|right|The Haystack Monument, Williams College, commemorates the event in 1806 that inspired the creation of the ABCFM. The '''American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions''' (ABCFM) was among the first United States of America|American Christian missionary organizations. It was created in 1810 by recent graduates of Williams College. In the 19th century it was the largest and most important of American missionary organizations. In 1961, the ABCFM or the American Board, as it was often called, merged with other societies to form the United Church Board for World Ministries, an agency of the United Church of Christ. Other organizations that draw inspiration from the ABCFM include InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference, and the Missionary Society of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches.
